How to Book a Wildtrips Adventures

Before you Start, Please Read the Waiver

Everyone who comes on a Wild Trips adventure must read, understand and sign an ACMG waiver and release of liability. This is a requirement set out by our insurance underwriter as well as by the land managers we deal with. Copies of the waiver are provided below so that you may familiarize yourself with some of the risks associated with the activity you are about to undertake. Please read it carefully.

Booking and Cancellations

For lodge bookings, your booking will be confirmed after we receive your deposit and completed registration form. The deposit is due upon booking and is non refundable. Final payment is due November 15th. If you are unable to make a trip and can find a suitable replacement that is acceptable. Price includes lodge rental, lodge meals and all staff. It also includes regular flights for exchange days. Should additional flights be needed due to extra weights the cost is the responsibility of the group. We therefore recommend you purchase trip cancellation insurance through your travel agent, insurance broker, or online. Please see below.

Insurance

Trip Cancellation Insurance

We recommend that you purchase trip cancellation insurance.

Rescue Insurance

We recommend that you purchase rescue insurance in case you require emergency medical rescue or evacuation due to illness or injury. Rescue costs can be considerable. Most rescues and medical evacuations from the remote locations we operate in involve helicopter flights which can cost several thousand dollars per hour. Participants are responsible for these costs. Some private insurance policies cover emergency rescue costs. However it is important to confirm prior to your trip that your private insurance covers rescues and includes rescues arising from mountain or climbing-related accidents.
